SignWriting List Forum
Subject: New to List
I want to say thank you for inviting us to this list. We are new to this
list. I found the Sign-Writing web site while surfing and researching for
my daughter, Sharminta. She is taking a Sign Language class in High School
this year and has a project to do. This project is to find a famous deaf
person and then write a report. We did find a few on the web but didn't
know exactly where to look.
We live in Falls Church, Virginia and so we started at the Galludet web
site. Sharminta is a freshman this year and just turned 14. She really
likes her sign language class. She has always been interested in signing
but never had the opportunity to learn until this year. She is also playing
JV Volleyball for her school and is a Competitive Gymnast.
My name is Susan and I work for an attorney. I am also researching my
family tree and I tutor one day a week at the local elementary school.
The web site is great. I have really enjoyed browsing through it.
